The time I spent living in Asia made me absolutely LOVE rice. I eat rice almost every single day now. I also fell in love with Thai food in general. To be honest, the delicious food is probably what I miss most about Thailand… so every time I make this thai coconut rice recipe, memories of Thailand come flooding back to me.

  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper chopped
